Have a look at this article: JavaScript Access to Page Controls after Ajax Update (via Update Panel)[^]

Sorry for not reading 'not update panel'
You can try,
1. Page.MaintainScrollPositionOnPostBack = true;
2. You can track the scroll position before the postback and then when the page is loading, on page load using javascript you can set back the scroll.

Firstly, I would suggest using:

Page.MaintainScrollPositionOnPostBack = true;

in your PageLoad event to maintain page position for your whole page.

Now, for the div question. I found a nice solution to your question here:[^]

I changed it a bit so to work with hiddenfield and not cookie. Below is the result.

<script type="text/javascript">
        window.onload = function () {
            var h = document.getElementById("<%=keep.ClientID%>");
            document.getElementById("divTest").scrollTop = h.value;
      function SetDivPosition(){
        var intY = document.getElementById("divTest").scrollTop;
        var h = document.getElementById("<%=keep.ClientID%>");
        h.value = intY;

Below is the starting tag of the div you want to maintain.

<div önscroll="SetDivPosition()" id="divTest">

- "divTest" is the name of the div you wish to maintain
- "keep" is the name of the hidden field I used

Tested with IE 8, Firefox 4 and Chrome 12.

Hope it helps!

var xPos, yPos;
       var prm = Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManager.getInstance();

       function BeginRequestHandler(sender, args) {

           yPos = $('#<%=divgvlocation.ClientID %>').scrollTop();
       function EndRequestHandler(sender, args) {
           $('#<%=divgvlocation.ClientID %>').scrollTop(yPos);
